In the current challenging economic climate, organisations are battling with the desire to drive growth and profitability, whilst investing in low carbon emitting technologies to reduce their carbon footprint and speed up their journey to achieving Net Zero.

With the UK Government’s commitment to a low carbon world, the drive to carbon neutrality and achieving Net Zero is dominating organisations’ future decision making.

The aim of our engagement is to ensure that our clients reduce their carbon footprint, ensure they are getting the very best value for money from their suppliers and improve efficiencies and processes. 

Carbon Reduction

Measuring your emission is important, but the real goal for us all MUST be to reduce our absolute emissions. Often organisations rush to implement reduction ideas with no real understanding of their impact on overall emissions. Equally, others spend far too much money offsetting emissions with carbon credits, without any real consideration towards carbon reduction.

A genuine journey to Net Zero must have real and meaningful carbon reduction ideas in consideration at executive level. Often these reduction ideas can be defined as short, medium or long term. They can also be targeted as procurement based, capital investment based, or behavioural change based.

Don’t just take our word for it….this is what our client United Wholesale Scotland had to say.

“We have been engaged with Auditel for 2 years now and they have assisted us on many projects including energy efficiency and procurement. The advice we receive is always thorough and precise, and I always believe they have our best interests at heart.”  - Chris Gallacher, UWS’s Managing Director

As more organisations and consumers begin to question and take action to reduce their own carbon footprints, the more your customers will demand to see how you have accounted for your carbon emissions and what you are doing to reduce them. Whether it be to comply with legislations, win tenders, meet consumer demand, tackle cost increases or just to stay competitive, we can help you.
